Cowboy Quilt Top

I started this quilt a year ago.  It was a pattern from one of the classes I took.  Since I didn’t like my fabric choice(too plain and boring), I decided to applique cowboys and horses that I found in the book Applique Quilt Revival. The cowboys and horses are raw edge applique that I blanket stitched onto the blocks.  It’s a bit time consuming, but I actually like hand applique and embroidery.  I also added the brown sashing and pinwheel cornerstones(remnants from the star blocks) to liven it up.  I’m planning on hand quilting it with a thick floss.   No hurries to finish, I’m thinking it will be for a future grandchild 🙂

Younger son is home for the moment, so I took advantage and had him hold up the quilt top 🙂
